Leaders from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), ChargEVC and EZ-EV as well as electric car owners, area dealerships and curious residents convened at the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) Environmental Park on Thursday, September 13, to discuss the latest in electric vehicle technology and incentives in New Jersey.
The event was part of a countrywide celebration of electric vehicles known as “National Drive Electric Week.” Earlier in the week, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy officially recognized Drive Electric Week in New Jersey and noted the strong link between vehicle emissions and climate change.
At the ACUA event, Andrea Friedman from the NJDEP shared information about the state’s new incentive program, which offers grants up to $6,000 per charging station for the purchase and installation of EV chargers at workplaces, public places and multi-family homes.
Ashley-Lynn Chrzaszcz of ChargeEVC, a New Jersey coalition working to advance the adoption of electric vehicles, discussed their work to help develop the electric vehicle market in New Jersey.
Michael Kurzeja, CEO of EZ-EV, an affiliate of Exelon/Atlantic City Electric, discussed his company’s efforts to make the driving electric experience as simple as a gasoline-powered vehicle.
Guests participated in lively discussion about the technology and the need for legislation to push the sector forward in New Jersey. Area dealerships were on site to show off the latest electric car models, and Beacon Cycling offered test-drives of electric bicycles.
